Full Steam Ahead

Posted by Courtney Frye on

Last Thursday I dropped into my email subscribers inbox with some big news. It still seems surreal to say and for those that missed it, here goes... I'm transitioning out of my part-time job in the financial services industry to take on The Painted Pearl full time! Was this part of my plan all along?
